Stomach Bug Diet

I came down with what I thought was food poisoning after eating a brown avocado with my tortilla soup Wednesday night. After exploding from both ends for 12 hours, I went to the emergency room severely dehydrated and with a high fever. It turned out to be a viral infection, but I'm feeling outrageously better even though food hasn't yet tempted me. I'm going to view this in a positive light and hope to shed some pounds as a side effect. We'll just have to see how the weigh in goes tomorrow.

Another side effect of the hospital trip, I haven't had any alcohol for 3 days now. I think I'm going to test out the "don't drink at home" policy to limit my beer and caloric intake. I don't think I'll last past Monday after work, but I'll give it my best go.


UPDATE: Well, because of this stint in the hospital lost 10 pounds of personal weight and 160 of boyfriend weight. I think the "divorce diet" will easily help me reach my 130 by 30 goal!
